Everyone I know that has been to Laos said “Don’t go to Vientiane! It’s crap!!”
But I went… it’s the perfect place to travel through on your way to other areas. We flew up from Bangkok to Udon Thani and then crossed the boarder into Vientiane. We only stayed overnight, but it was better than going all the way to Vang Vien non-stop.
There are some beautiful views by the river, so stop overnight and check out some of the restaurants before moving on.over 4 years ago
